EDIT: Looks like it's been promoted too early, they've pulled the info from the website.

Some info here:

VST to AAX wrapper
TransVST is a plugin wrapper, which transforms VST plugins into AAX Plugins.
With TransVST, you can use VST Plugins in Pro Tools 10 and higher.
TransVST runs as a standalone program which offers a luxurious plugin management and integrates any VST plugin in Pro Tools, so that it can be used as a normal AAX plugin. TransVST is already 64bit compatible and so it´s ready for future Pro Tools versions. Furthermore, TransVST supports creative plugin functions like Midi Out, Sidechaining and Multi Outputs.

Features at a glance:
- Multi Output for Effects and Instruments
- Multi Input for Effects (Sidechaining)
- Midi Output
- AudioSuite support
- FXB/FXP Preset Import
- Stereo to Mono
- VST Shell support
- 64bit ready

Update: Sugar Bytes say they "released it too early" but reports from here:

suggest a couple of people got their hands on it and it's working well.

Here's the scoop from the Pro Tools Expert blog...

No sooner had the cool Sugar Bytes TransVST been launched than it was pulled. We have a statement from Avid Today.

“Sugar Bytes are outstanding developers who are bringing great-sounding plug-ins to market including AAX plug-ins. The Avid plug-in developer agreement that developers sign is for plug-ins that can be used with Pro Tools and other Avid products. Other types of products, like the wrapper, require our specific permission, as we granted in the case of FXpansion. We maintain this permission step in our efforts to ensure a quality experience on our audio platform and to carefully consider the effects of these exceptions on customers and developers. We appreciate Sugar Bytes”

We look forward to a speedy resolution.

On the DUC someone posted that there's a rumour PT11 will come bundled with an FXpansion VST>AAX wrapper.

Personally, if it's true, I'd still rather go with Sugar Bytes, if it gets released, on the basis they're more likely not to treat their customers as badly as Fxpansion choose to.

Also - what's the likelihood that Fxpansion will in any way compensate their customers saddled with an unusable wrapper if it then comes "free" with PT11?

That rumour is false, unless Avid knows something we don't.

They know as much about your future plans, if any, then as do your "customers".
Awesome job keeping us in the loop.

Yep, it's not like we're party to non disclosure agreements with companies whose legal team is larger than our entire organization...

Oh wait.

You guys, honestly, it's verging on Aspergers to piss off your already annoyed customers as a competitor brings out a working product.
